Installing from unstable branch

Hey, i want to install package from unstable branch through pacman. The package in question is
Does anyone know how do i install it? Currently i have version 2.38-5

You cannot go grabbing glibc from out of your tree.

To get an idea of why … here is a print out of everything on my system that relies on glibc:

If you think you want to switch branches then you can see this:

But i need it in order for valgrind to work

valgrind is in the repos.
Why do you think you need a different glibc version ?

It does appear the wiki is down :thinking:

Heres a cached page:


I need it because i have encountered this problem while running valgrind:

valgrind:  Fatal error at startup: a function redirection
valgrind:  which is mandatory for this platform-tool combination
valgrind:  cannot be set up.  Details of the redirection are:
valgrind:  A must-be-redirected function
valgrind:  whose name matches the pattern:      strlen
valgrind:  in an object with soname matching:
valgrind:  was not found whilst processing
valgrind:  symbols from the object with soname:
valgrind:  Possible fixes: (1, short term): install glibc's debuginfo
valgrind:  package on this machine.

glibc 2.38-7 is available on Testing and Unstable branches - glibc

@krest Creating a new thread for the same thing after already receiving the answer is not acceptable.

If you have issues after actually doing what was suggested in that answer, then creating another thread is acceptable.
